Taking your boat abroadRIB

International Certificate of Competence (I.C.C.) and
Code Européen des Voies de la Navigation Intérieure (C.E.V.N.I.) Endorsement.  

Many countries require visiting yachtsmen to hold a certificate of competence. If you are planning to sail or cruise within Europe and the Mediterranean the RYA recommends skippers to hold the International Certificate of Competence (ICC).

This qualification is available to BRITISH CITIZENS or bona fide BRITISH RESIDENTS.

If you would like to take your vessel through the European Canals or rivers you will need to take your C.E.V.N.I. test as an additional requirement. If you hold RYA Powerboat Level 2 certificate you can apply for the relevant I.C.C.

To undertake an I.C.C. and C.E.V.N.I. Test.  

By taking a practical test. The syllabus is outlined in the form. The test lasts approximately half a day and can be taken on your own boat or one provided by a school or club. The test includes; questions on safety, collision avoidance and for coastal waters; navigation and piloting. The type of centre or club you will need to approach for a course or assessment will depend on the type of vessel you will be operating.  
Cost £65.00
The CEVNI rules can be found in the 'RYA Book of Euroregs for Inland Waters'. 'Foreign Cruising 1 & 2' is essential reading for planning a cruise abroad, giving precise information on relevant documentation and certification when cruising in each country.
Cost £65.00 

Once you have passed the practical and CEVNI requirements, you will then have to submit evidence of qualifications to the RYA in order to have your International Certificate of Competence issued.

RYA Fees

If you are an RYA member your ICC will be issued free of charge. If you are not an RYA member there is currently a fee of £38.00.

There is an option to fast track your application (in two days) for an additional fee of £10.
Our advice would be that you join the RYA, not only for the savings it brings you for your ICC, but also for the other services they provide to boat owners.
